First of all before we start posting, we are so glad that through this blog we are able to meet quite a handful of other polisholics in Singapore! Most of them that Inky have met so far do share the same problem, which is we have friends that dont understand why are we so crazy about polishes, and what so great about it?! HAHA, its quite a joke isnt it? hahas, yet Inky are so glad to know and befriend with all these lovely polisholics!
Look what we got in our mail box! Rescue Beauty Lounge's BIB2 orders! YEAH! We ordered them during the presale somewhere in October!
About Rescue Beauty Lounge(RBL)
Founded by a South Korean Lady, name Ji. She moved to the States at the age of 12 with her family, and have a wonderful journey of life before starting out this line. Ji her own blog, which talks about her food adventures, the books she read, etc.
Created with resin and high molecular polymers to improve flexibility, durability and high shine. B3F Free, and no products are tested on animals. Price is 18USD per bottle of polishes.
Definitely love their packaging, the polishes are well protected with 2 layers of bubble wrapped. Before putting the polishes into the bubblewrap, the polishes are separated from one another by a cute box!
Even though to some it may not seem to be friendly to the environment, but we guess that its up to us how we, as consumer want to reuse all those packaging that we have received in order to prevent them from being wasted!
Before mentioning more in depth about the RBL polishes and the prices, lets take a look at how delicately the orders are wrapped! Inky love to take pictures of our polishes order, as we want to share with every single one of the polisholics, how thoughtful and caring are those ladies(people) wrapping up our orders. As it was our first time ordering from RBL, we requested for our orders to be bubble wrapped, so that those polishes would be able to reach our doorstep safely.
*Tip: Whenever you want to order any polishes overseas, double check with the way the orders are wrapped by contacting the site. It would be great to get them to bubble wrap your orders, as you may not know what will happen while your parcel travels all the way to Singapore. Better safe than sorry!
Ji not only bubblewrap our orders, but with two layers!
Look at the beautiful paper used to wrap all our five BIB2 orders!
Gosh, Shiying has already taken it to reuse for scrap booking!
Its so thoughtful and sweet of Lara & Ji to reply our customer note:)
Definitely like sites and 'boss' who personally thank their customer to make them feel appreciated:)
we ordered five polishes from the BIB2 orders, are you guessing what did we get?
The limited edition bottles which are sold during the BIB2 orders are packed in this crimson red boxes.
We certainly love this packaging, its so easy to put our tiny little accessories inside before placing them in our handbags to bring them around!
Does this box reminds you of those boxes that were used to package those miniature version of those perfumes from Lancome, Estee Lauder, etc?
Want to make a guess what color is this?
The usual colors that can be found in stores are packed in the mint green boxes.
5 polishes that we got are Mismas & Scrangie from BIB2, Purple Haze, Bikini Bottom and Piu Mosso from their current in store collections
Say hello to Scrangie!
Index & Ring Finger: Scrangie
Scrangie is designed and name after by Scrangie, a well known nail swatcher and reviewer, its a blueish purple based mixed with some blue and greenish shimmer. In this picture it looks more of a purple base, but outdoor under the sun it appears to be more blue. The shade was first introduced in 2009 and went out of stock on numerous occasions but came back instock again due to popular and high demand! Now its back in stores again! Hurry grab a bottle of it, before it runs out again! Get Scrangie here!
Middle Finger & Pinkey: Mismas
Love the application process of Mismas, it was definitely easier that using OPI Funkey Dunkey! The formula of the color was just as good as the application. Like Scrangie, Mismas was created by another nail reviewer and blogger, ALC. This was created for RBL's Fall 2009 collection, Mismas (Miss-mas) is a purple creme base, slightly lighter than OPI Funkey Dunkey. Personally, we felt that RBL's creme polishes seems easier to apply compared to the others nail polish brand we tried so far. Even thought, there were bald spots and streaks on the first coat, everything was flawless after applying the second coat! This polish definitely made us addicted to creme polishes again!
Definitely cant wait to use RBL Creme polishes soon!
Look at the sticker that Ji has pasted on the bottles, love Ji:)Gosh this is definitely a nice sticker note for your consumers;D
Hmm, Are you able to guess what did we use for layering over our Ring Finger and Pinkey?:)
Yeaps, its Orly Fowl Play:D
Inky love layering Orly Fowl Play over anything that would goes well with it;D
Are you able to see how Fowl Play has turned out after layering over the different purple shades?
Ring Finger: Fowl Play over Scrangie,
Fowl Play has cover Scrangie's shimmers, but its definitely lighter than the outcome of layering fowl play over Mismas:)
Pinkey: Fowl Play over Mismas
Hmm, seems like you would know how your Fowl Play will turn out after being layered over some dark and deep purple polishes!
Which combination would you pick?
Fowl Play with Mismas or Scrangie?
Inky loves the combination with Scrangie!
